Title: Alabama @ Arkansas
Post by: CharlieHog on February 03, 2012, 11:05:41 AM
from Facebook:

This is it. Today is the day when the Ice Hogs take on Alabama. Remember what's at stake: the Hogs are two points behind Alabama in the standings so a win tonight ties things up. Then, a win tomorrow secures the Hogs' third consecutive SEC-West regular season title. Bring a friend and get to the rink tonight at 7:30 pm!!

Oh, and there was some confusion with UATV.  They were booked to stream tomorrow nights game, but misunderstood and didn't realize there is one tonight.  As of 3 pm Arkansas time they were scrambling to get their gear set up.  Here's to them pulling it off...   :beer:

We're winning, and that's all I can tell at the moment.  I know that Oliver and Sundstedt have scored, but info is dicey.

Judas.  This reminds me of driving up into the mountains in Colorado and stringing a spool of wire into a tree just to listen to the fucking Texas game.  And this is the fucking Texas game.

It's $6 to get in, $2 for students. Not sure how much for kids.

Last night's game was INCREDIBLE. Best crowd I have ever seen at one of our games, it was absolutely packed. When the puck dropped the seating was full and there was still a long line of people waiting to get tickets. It ended up with tons of people standing behind the seating area, and the rink was completely ringed with fans, which made it pretty loud when they started beating on the glass.

Bama came out and thought they could push us around, which obviously didn't work because we aren't some crappy team. We went up 2-0 pretty easily. They backed off a little in the last two periods and started playing better. It was really a great game.

It got pretty chippy, and the refs were calling it pretty tight. Lots of penalty box time.

It was on the news last night too. http://www.5newsonline.com/news/kfsm-ice-hogs-hold-on-to-dreams-of-third-consecutive-championship-20120203,0,7225704.story

Raise some hell.

Direct quote from one of the players today:  "The Razorback fan is unreal.  I love every one of them." 

They're on a major high from last night, and are smelling Bama blood tonight.  This will be a brutal game.  Bodies will be flying.  Bama is WAY physical, and our young men are hungry.

Puck drops in an hour and twenty.  There will be a line, so get there early.  SRO tonight folks, just like last night when there was a line out the door.  Go call the Hogs and root this team to a win. 

Fuck Alabama.  :notexas:

A number one or two ranking.  I've heard it told multiple ways, so I don't think anyone really knows how the rankings work.  All I know is they keep winning and they skip to Nationals.

UATV was supposed to air it.  Something must have gone wrong.  If I had to guess, it would be that the wireless signal in the press box isn't strong enough for the IPTV signal.  One of our projects has been to get some cabling infrastructure up there, but it got put on hold in lieu of the jersey project. 

Great game, Hogs!!  We beat #2 UCF and #3 Bama in the past ten days.  We should move to #2, but like I said I don't really know how all of that works.

What a ride.

It was an awesome crowd and an awesome game. I got there a little after 7 and the stands inside were already full and I had to wait in a line of about 50 people to get tickets. By the time we got our tickets there was already standing room only in the stands. We went and stood behind the goal, which was an awesome perspective. The area around the glass quickly filled up.

Amazing to see how far the support has come for our hockey team. It's too bad there isn't someplace bigger for them to play. They may have to start selling reserved seats if they keep up the winning. A $6 ticket at the Jones Center could become the hottest ticket in town.

It'll probably never happen because of Title IX....but I agree I'd love to see it....and you are correct about the programming. Friday night is college hockey night if you have DirecTv....there is usually about 5 or 6 games on at or around the same time on NBC Sports (Versus), CBSCollege, NESN, BIGTen, etc....(603,610,613,617,etc....) BIGTen, Ivy League, whatever the NE area and Midwest area conferences are.....Minnesota & North Dakota have AWESOME arenas....It's a fun change of pace from NHL if you like watching hockey. It would be great to have a Southern League....wishful fantasyland thoughts.....

I know there has been some discussion with Athletics, but the cost of building an on-campus rink comes into play moreso than Title IX.

I agree. It would be easy to take care of Title IX by adding women's ice hockey.

Building an arena would be the huge hurdle. And getting the rest of the SEC to commit to building arenas. It's not going to happen.

First let me say I am sorry to any decent Arkansas fan I might have offended with my blog last night. I know there are some good fans out there for every school and really shouldn't judge based on a few, but last night really touched a sore spot with me.

I can answer about the rankings, the SECHC tournament is 1 week after regionals and has zero bearing on the rankings. The final rankings will come out early this coming week.

For the person guesstimating a crowd of 3000+ that is about 2000 more than there was. I am glad to see the SECHC getting some mention on a fan site and would like to encourage you to come to Huntsville February 24-26.

Actually, the long term athletics/campus master plan calls for a multi-use arena between 6th street and Baum or another place on the south end of campus.  This would allow for the demolition of Barnhill (which is going to happen anyway) and be used for concerts and other things that can't be done in BWA.

You should be apologizing to yourself.  You saw first hand how much more beautiful and livable northwest Arkansas is than Alabama, how there aren't trailer meth labs as far as the eye can see, how you can stand behind a woman and see something 45 degrees to your right, how teeth are more common than cold sores.  YOU saw this, and now you know.  While Alabama is a hopeless shell of backwards attitudes, crushing poverty, rampant illiteracy and the most base violations of sexual taboos with regards to relatives and livestock, Fayetteville is instead the jewel of America, where business fights to relocate, individuals work their whole lives in the dream of becoming wealthy enough to retire there, and the people are as close to God's desire to have man in His image as any you can find.

You saw this with your own eyes and, knowing someone of your class could never live here, you chose to lash out against reality and your own desires by speaking ill of a land you will surely never remove from your most wistful dreams at night.  You have robbed yourself of whatever dignity an Alabaman might have, and put yourself on the wrong side of the ledger from the only people you will ever again aspire to be - Arkansans.

This is what you need to do to assuage (cahm doun) your obvious angst over this sin...go outside to the bathroom, look at your reflection in the 18 inches of standing red seal spit, and say "Ronnie boy, you done did wrong hur, andtchu knowit.  I sure is sorry."

Only this can save your bloated and likely pimply soul.  Salvation lies within.

Apparently as one of our players was leaving the ice, an Arkansas player/fan poked one of our guys where the #71 patch was on his jersey and told him, I hope #71 enjoyed watching you lose from hell. Which in my opinion that is classless in every sense of the word and was uncalled for.

Everywhere you go you're going to run into fans like that.  I've never been to a game in Alabama, but I've seen a few of their fans talk trash loudly after a game on the Hill.  I've been to games at Ole Miss, Tennessee, and Texas.  Texas fans were okay because we just laid the wood to them.  95% of the Tennessee fans told us we sucked and got in our faces after the game (6 OT game), the other 5% wished us a safe ride home.  Ole Miss fans stand behind the visitor section and talk trash the entire game.  This was a very small % of the fan base but I didn't hear any trash after the game (we lost 9-7).  So don't judge the entire fan base on one fan.  Otherwise we wouldn't let Alabama fans in the state because we enjoy our trees, we'd be afraid they would shoot their offspring after a loss, or tea bag everyone on the way to the car.

I seriously doubt this happened.

So players, coaches and other Arkansas supporters who where in the middle of it would lie to me? With the class shown by the player who had the assist on the final goal, I would say it probably did happen.

Whether you like it or not THAT is the image that most people outside the state of Alabama have of your fan base. Maybe not necessarily the sexual assaulter but DEFINITELY of the people who stood by and cheered him on, videoed it, and then proudly posted it on You Tube.

We EXPECT that kind of treatment in Tuscaloosa as a visitor. We consider it the norm for your fans.

All of these people told you it was a fan OR a player? Or some told you it was a fan, and some told you it was a player?

Sorry, but as related, it seems like an incredibly unlikely story to me. It seems more likely that somebody (honestly) misinterpreted something said that was much less inflammatory and as the story was related to different people it became more and more inflammatory.

Well if that's what you expect then you are lesser a person than I am. I believe win or lose show class and I did not do that, which is why I came to this board to apologize. I have deleted that blog post because after thinking about it on a nights rest I should have waited before posting.

Okay, Ron, if that actually happened to your player then it was a shitty thing to say.  I can categorically guarantee you that no woopigger was involved in that shit.  We're actually pretty nice people over here.  In fact, to show there are no hard feelings, I just sent you a facebook friend request.  http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002054381948

Every fan base has their ugly morons.  You'll find ours here: www.hogville.net , or if your dildo I bought when I was 16's on, 66.219.27.66

I can 100% guarantee you that if someone actually did what you're claiming, they are a hogville.net poster.  Rather than denigrate the entire Arkansas fan base, you should go kick the crap out of the people who were responsible for this.  Good luck, frien.

I agree. It would be easy to take care of Title IX by adding women's ice hockey.

Building an arena would be the huge hurdle. And getting the rest of the SEC to commit to building arenas
. It's not going to happen.
It costs about 400k to add ice to an arena.   Why couldn't we use BWA or Barnhill?

I just saw some article about the Jones Center in Springdale and it was an amazing cost to keep that ice going.  Of course I don't recall the exact amount but it was their largest expense.   I doubt the UofA is gonna do that for a club sport.  They haggle enough with fucking jerseys.

You should be apologizing to yourself.  You saw first hand how much more beautiful and livable northwest Arkansas is than Alabama, how there aren't trailer meth labs as far as the eye can see, how you can stand behind a woman and see something 45 degrees to your right, how teeth are more common than cold sores.  YOU saw this, and now you know.  While Alabama is a hopeless shell of backwards attitudes, crushing poverty, rampant illiteracy and the most base violations of sexual taboos with regards to relatives and livestock, Fayetteville is instead the jewel of America, where business fights to relocate, individuals work their whole lives in the dream of becoming wealthy enough to retire there, and the people are as close to God's desire to have man in His image as any you can find.

You saw this with your own eyes and, knowing someone of your class could never live here, you chose to lash out against reality and your own desires by speaking ill of a land you will surely never remove from your most wistful dreams at night.  You have robbed yourself of whatever dignity an Alabaman might have, and put yourself on the wrong side of the ledger from the only people you will ever again aspire to be - Arkansans.

This is what you need to do to assuage (cahm doun) your obvious angst over this sin...go outside to the bathroom, look at your reflection in the 18 inches of standing red seal spit, and say "Ronnie boy, you done did wrong hur, andtchu knowit.  I sure is sorry."

Only this can save your bloated and likely pimply soul.  Salvation lies within.

Damn Hurt, you are an eloquent sumbitch when you're sober.
